Bennett lives in Portland, Oregon, and loves to explore the backroads and mountain passes of the Pacific Northwest on skinny tires. Working in various roles across the bike industry since 2008 has given Bennett a broad and deep understanding of cycling gear and tech. Certainly no retrogrouch, Bennett still holds onto an irrational love of rim brakes. He’s lost count of how many bikes he’s owned but continues to swear up and down that his next bike will be his last. After racing road and gravel for a decade, Bennett set his sights Strava, Everesting three times and racking up 1M feet of vertical in 2020. Since starting a family, he rides (and sleeps) less, but still shaves his legs and rips down fast and twisty descents, especially if there’s craft beer near the bottom.
